    "A triangular pyramid is a geometric solid with a base that is a triangle and all other faces are triangles with a common vertex. A triangular prism is ageometric solid with two bases that are congruent (identical), parallel triangles and all other faces are parallelograms."

    A right prism is a prism in which the joining edges and faces are perpendicular to the base faces. This applies if the joining faces are rectangular. If the joining edges and faces are not perpendicular to the base faces, it is called an oblique prism.
